  • I think so many people are keyboard activists right everybody's good at

  • sending a tweet about how the world should be and nobody's doing anything

  • about it and that just that is just very much human nature we've gotten soft as a

  • culture yes you know I mean of course we've gotten soft as a culture in the

  • u.s. because the US has had an incredible two hundred year run right

  • like this is just what happens you know so as a culture you know I can't speak

  • for you know people that live in the Amazon River and I can't speak for you

  • know people that still live in Belarus but the American culture is soft and

  • that's a great thing that means there's been enormous amounts of prosperity but

  • let's not be naive I mean people literally complain when

  • somebody gives them the wrong amount of like extra cream in a Starbucks $6 coffee

  • my lack of interest in complaining is so high and when I watch what people

  • complain about it breaks my heart because they completely lack perspective

  • and i genuinely believe my happiness and optimism comes from my perspective even

  • in political unrest times like right now a lot of people very bent out of shape

  • but the reality is is that it just never been better to be a human being it's

  • that's just the truth that's just data that's that's reality

  • and yeah I mean it's just a very fun time to be alive

  • and I think the way people look at the world right now because it's such an

  • incredible time is actually the quickest tell to who they are if you think it

  • sucks but it's bad you have losing pessimistic DNA and if

  • you think it's awesome and phenomenal you have optimistic winning DNA and I

  • believe that to be true and so that's where we're at we're beating ourselves

  • up like everybody sucks that's something right like we all have shortcomings and

  • we all have strengths and for me it's like why don't we just audit that like

  • why don't we just look at it that way and be like alright well I'm good at

  • this but I'm not good at that like and then and then and then I only focus what I'm

  • good at right like I don't dwell that I can't fix shit around the house I call

  • somebody to fix him like I'm not like I'm not a man I don't give a fuck like

  • you know like like you know like I don't I don't get it like we all like I also

  • think it's awesome that I'm so emotionally stable and I'm the emotional

  • backbone of everybody is that what a dude's supposed to do like like these

  • cliches these stereotypes they're so silly I'm fully in love with myself but

  • I'm also fully in love with everybody else too right it's not like like it

  • goes both ways like I tell people to buy in to be that work for me it's cuz I buy

  • into them first like I don't need anybody to gain trust with me I it's

  • they're like I believe that the human race is so grossly underrated we are

  • good of course we have some bad there's fucking 7 billion of us but like when

  • you look at our net score it's bonkers shit like you know what you damage we

  • can be doing to each other on a hourly basis and we don't like we're still here

  • like we won were the Alpha being and we've figured out how to stay together

  • this is insane when you think about it and yet everybody wants to dwell on like

  • somebody said something mean

  • if you want to be an anomaly you have to act like one like people want all these

  • special things to happen but then they're acting like everybody else and

  • that gets into this Saturdays on in your 20s like or or just like taking risks or

  • things of that nature like there's anything they take away it's like look

  • like you're gonna only be so pretty you're only gonna be so smart like you

  • like there's there's things that are gonna be natural and there's things that

  • you can actually control I do believe and I don't know if I'm right or wrong I

  • don't but I do believe that work ethic is a taught behavior it's something you

  • do have more control over and you know what really sealed a deal for me getting

  • healthier I was 38 years old and didn't come natural to me like it didn't come

  • natural to me at all I hate the gym I hate him out I hate it I don't like it I

  • don't want to do it but I but I knew it was important and somewhere around

  • midway through being 38 years old I got serious I figured out my system I made

  • the financial commitment and I've won right and I'll never lose again because

  • the system was I needed to be accountable to another human being so it

  • was about Mike and now Jordan and whoever else is my trainer I'm doing it

  • almost weirdly more to not let them down I feel like there's a shift that can

  • make people work harder the big one that I push is you're gonna die like like if

  • your complaint like to me life is broken down into complaining and not so if

  • you're not complaining well then I've never I have no advice for you I'm

  • pumped like you did it like like I've friends who make $42,000 a year work

  • 9:00 to 4:00 ,with an hour to have lunch and 45

  • minutes of YouTube and ten minutes of bullshitting and an hour of complete

  • waste of time in a meeting so the kind of working like 6:00 you know hours a

  • week right but they're pumped and-and-and they text

  • me these are highschool friends and they'll text me like how happy they are

  • to be the coach of their kids baseball team and you know like that's amazing

  • like that that seems very obvious to me like that's like that's right you know

  • which is super weird I'm actually nearly any yes you know like I it sounds cool

  • like in theory right grass is always greener right like far less pressure you

  • know like like all that time with my kids

  • booth that would be cool like there's just like all these things that I can

  • justify so to me but I have friends who have a hundred million dollars in the

  • bank because of Facebook's IPO who complain who are still hungry who want

  • to do even more who will complain to me because they

  • know I work a lot about no work-life balance and they don't get to spend

  • enough time with their family and I'm like you have a hundred million dollars

  • like you could stay home like you're in control like you don't complain about it

  • you've made that choice don't bullshit me

  • like you want to spend more time with your family spend more time with your

  • family

  • I'm trying to be very careful about what I'm saying versus what I'm doing because

  • that's how you get exposed and I don't mean like people calling you out and

  • being like you suck I mean to yourself I don't want to be exposed by myself it's

  • it's it's looking at yourself in the mirror and saying like am I doing this

  • right so to me there's so many people they're talking shit about how big of an

  • entrepreneur they're gonna be and how much they're gonna achieve and they

  • don't work on weekends you know I worked every Saturday of my 20s like and I talk

  • to 20 year old entrepreneurs every single day lately I've been saying to

  • them this Saturday you're gonna have more time off than I've had in my entire

  • 20s on a Saturday so like before you tell me how you're gonna be bigger than

  • me start thinking about what you're actually doing

  • I'm careful to not give advice that I know is uniquely something that I was

  • gifted with like I'd how do I tell you that

  • oh here's how it actually works and it almost started happening it didn't

  • happen like I actually get goosebumps like actually like real heavy goosebumps

  • when I hear something that I know feels right what's the advice there hey Johnny

  • start getting goosebumps like I can't there's certain things that I can't talk

  • about because I know they're not practical they're intuitive to me

  • I plan to instill kindness until Achatz I plan on instilling perspective into my

  • kids I plan in instilling just being a good human being

  • I plan on making sure they don't use their parents wealth and micro fame and

  • leverage to impose them on any other person I was petrified of that if my

  • kids try to Punk their friends on my shit I'm gonna get the fuck out of them

  • like that just loser DNA you didn't do that we right like so like I'm not

  • obsessed with tactics I'm obsessed with religion so I have a lot of wealthy

  • friends at this point who think it's smart for them to sit first class but

  • the kids in coach it's a tactic they send their kids to Africa to build a

  • school for a week it's a tactic it's like my friends that love the

  • environment the number two sector in the world that is hurting the environment is

  • the fashion industry when you run the math of what's doing bad to the earth

  • it's the number two industry behind Gaza i I don't even want to say it cuz I'm

  • not sure if it's gas in oil the number two industry the sign of the fact is the

  • fashion industry so all my fancy friends who love the environment are they

  • willing to give up their fucking Louie bags let's say right so like I think

  • people talk shit so you let them sit coach and you went first class but you

  • went to you know Hawaii and eat it all the best pluck you can't pick and choose

  • to me it's binary so I don't wanna be a hypocrite so my big thing is like look

  • you need to be kind like mean mean is just non-negotiable in our family right

  • and then you just need to not be full of shit if you want to look at daddy's

  • mountain and you want to say what I did to my dad's and that was a big mountain

  • for an immigrant like wow dad did it right if you want to say I'm gonna climb

  • that and I'm gonna climb bigger awesome like I'm pumped I'm weirdly not cheering

  • for you cuz I'm I'm just a weirdly competitive dude this is actually

  • something I'm not proud of I'm comfortable saying this and I believe

  • this is a flaw but I don't want my kids to beat me I don't like I don't I

  • saying it I know this is where I get in trouble people will take one little clip

  • from one video interview and they're like you're a bad eye it's just my truth

  • I don't want to bullshit you guys like I'm that competitive

  • I just want them to be all in on them right like I don't need them to be an

  • entrepreneur I don't need them to make me proud they don't need to go to

  • Harvard they don't need to give shit they need to be themselves all in and

  • they need to be kind and I'm good

  • like everybody thinks their stuff is so good like everyday Gary my instagrams so

  • on fire soda awesome why is nobody like why am I not gaining

  • followers cuz it's not awesome

  • think we all think our stuff is the best and like I get that but yeah that would

  • be my advice only because that also is liberating me everything's about

  • breathing right like to me everything is about like take full ownership for

  • everything and then everything gets easy cuz then you're in control and then

  • learn how to love to lose I think that's how that's how entrepreneurship that's

  • how life is we all have losses and so I like losses I love adversity

  • I like the climb I like the chip on my shoulder I like when people like all I

  • knew and he's not that good that is like like I'm even weirdly scared as I

  • continue to ascend and I'm getting popular and wouldn't you say the

  • marketing leaning like if people start putting these words in front of my name

  • I'm like am I gonna sabotage myself to like recorrect this like I like

  • adversity so yeah all on me you know I enjoy losses now all of a sudden like

  • what you become completely invincible I feel invincible I really genuinely

  • outside of the health of myself and 20 people feel 100% invincible as a person

  • I know what my intent is I want to do good at nobody else's expense I'm far

  • from perfect we all are and so just easy it feels very light to

  • live life I'm just in a good mood

  • them home and I think modern-day parents and most parents do not do that

  • I think they focus on dumb shit like grades because they are insecure and

  • they want to put the bumper sticker that their kid went to you know Stanford like

  • it's real fucked up when you really think about what's actually happening so

  • much of it is misery loves company or people reflecting of what's inside of them

  • is the impact that you want to have on the world same thing that attracts so

  • many of millions of people to people that are selling bullshit those same

  • people are attracted to me and what I want to do is suffocate out all those

  • other people and become the Alpha of that entire world of people that are are

  • hoping and are desperate to look at me and what I want to do is inspire two 14

  • year old girls in Kansas City right now to build a billion dollar company on

  • having a bunch of employees hugging each other in a house I think that Steve Jobs

  • came along became an icon but the sad part of that narrative was he did not

  • treat his employees well he became an icon and the narrative became and he got

  • the most out of people by being a jerk and that became romanticized and a lot

  • of people in Silicon Valley today run companies worth their mean because they

  • think that's the right thing to do because they put Steve Jobs on a

  • pedestal I want my pedestal moment I want to

  • become that big and what I want to come from that is that kids that aren't even

  • born think that they can build a five billion

  • dollar company and be a great guy or great gal I want to build the biggest

  • building in town ever by just building the biggest building in town while I

  • think most people try to tear down everybody else's building so I think

  • positivity and good is practical advice to building an empire and I want to be

  • the poster child of the person that don't biggest baddest empire and did it

  • by being a good dude along the way and not everybody's gonna be happy about

  • everything I did but if it's 97% of people talking good behind your back

  • that's a real legacy and I want to do it in a pop culture way I'm gonna do it

  • anyway people have done that before just so you know there's plenty of people

  • Warren Buffett's a really good dude like there's plenty of people that have done

  • that there's a difference I want to do it and I want to be a rock star right

  • like and that's where you influence people like you know like I want to do

  • it but I also want to be the most popular and so then that person's like

  • oh I want to be him so I guess I'll be nice like I want to literally take

  • people who have DNA that's kind of nice and make them more nice because they

  • think that's how I became big so I basically want to trick the business

  • world into becoming kinder

I think so many people are keyboard activists right everybody's good at
